. nbc's steve handelsman joins us live from the arena with the story. steve? >> reporter: thanks, good evening. i can tell you this, the guy who's going to run this debate for all of us to learn from, you won't hear that guy call this a rumble in the rockies, mark jim lehrer will order those in the audience not to boo or his or clap. we, americans, can concentrate on what these candidates have to say. more than 60 million americans could watch tonight's debate. >> i've made up my mind, but i'd still like to see both of the candidates sweat a little bit. >> reporter: president obama looked relaxed this week. mitt romney, too. but he knows he has to change perceptions tonight. more voters now see romney negatively than see him positively. and that loses elections. >>. >> reporter: in virginia, romney's down by just two. with a lot on the line in past debates, romney has done well. >> going against romney is not a fun thing. he has the facts. he drills you, stays, tenacious. >> reporter: and sometimes aggressive. >> the idea that i'm anti-immigrant is repulsive. don't use a term like that
is will the headline 7.8% do anything to slow down mitt romney's rise? let's talk. igor volski, and steve moore. good evening, gentlemen. steve moore, it is possible that the economy is doing a little better or did better in september than people think. i don't want to defend the number but the bureau of labor statistics say the economy is not as bad as some people think. >> it was a decent number, no question about it. barack obama got his four-year wish list. he got that 7 in front of the unemployment rate number, which he's wanted for a long time. i'll say what i say in our editorial tomorrow. the labor market still stinks, larry. this is a lousy labor market. we still have 14.6% people who are unemployed when you include the people who can't find a full-time job, when you include all those people who dropped out of the labor force, that's 23 million people. i wanted to emphasize one thing with your conversation with jack welch. jack was right about one thing. there are only 10,000 added in terms of government jobs in the new report but all of the additional -- the revised upward jobs numbers for
battlegrounds today tell an obama victory story. democratic strategist steve el mendorf, kerry's deputy campaign manager in '04. how are you? >> good, how are you. >> tell me about why your guy won the debates and lost the election and what that says potentially about this dynamic and this race right now is this. >> i think any challenger has a benefit when they get up on the stage against the president of the united states. the debates level the playing field. they put you on the stage in an equal footing. i think mitt romney comes into the debate with an advantage because of that. i think the question in this race, all campaigns are different and i think in this race, this is very much of a choice election. i think people see very different visions for the future between these two candidates and my guess is, when we get out of the debates they are going to continue to see the two visions and right now they're picking barack obama's vision. i think in 2004, it was more of a referendum on bush and i think ultimately people decided that the referendum they wanteded to stay with the incumbent. i t
, the conservative cause. steve and i made this film with him. he passed away suddenly, tragically, just after we finished principal photography. he's a main part of this movie. we're so proud of being able to bring this out and remember andrew when we watch it. >> greta: steve, what did you learn from this movie? i know it's a documentary, you went in to study occupy wall street. what did you learn? the one thing i learned, these guys know what they're doing. if you think how they changed the conversation. greta, we start the film in a prologue in the summer of 2011 with the national debate that you just talked about in the previous block about cutting spending, increasing debt for the first time. the occupy movement started six weeks later in zuccotti park, and essentially changed the conversation. we don't talk about the guests . we don't talk about the national debt. we haven't had a meaningful conversation since 2011. one of the reasons was the occupy movement. they're changed the debate to fairness, equality, 1% versus the 99%. i found they're very effective. >> greta: david, difference bet
a two-point bump. either way it's news. >> let's get right to our panel now. we're joined by steve kornacki, co-host of "the cycle," jimy williams back in new york. steve, mr. hannity and, what's his name, mr. carlson, is that his name, they talk about whipping up fear, paranoia and hatred. that's them, not the video, isn't it? >> i mean, it is amazing to me that the right is still, five years after barack obama became a presidential candidate -- >> five years after i saw that very video. >> the moment, if there was a moment the whole jeremiah wright association and all this racial stuff that's there, if there was a moment that that was going to hurt and sink barack obama politically, it was april of 2008. there was a serious crisis in barack obama's campaign. he delivered a speech on race, a speech to be remembered for years to come and that put the issue to rest for 70%, 80% of the public. but there's this sliver of the public on the right still living in april of 200. it's a real problem for the republican party. when you're a month away from the election and your candidate is l
, and steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell will be our man in the spin room tonight. and the one and only chris matthews is at the university of denver, which is the site of tonight's debate. chris, i've been watching you this past hour. i can sense the excitement that you feel, that i feel as well. i mean, it is a big night when these candidates speak at their conventions, but tonight the tv audience for this debate could be almost twice the size as the convention audience. just a huge night. what are each of these guys thinking they need to do tonight? >> well, i think obama's the one i'm focused on, the president. because everybody's been talking about, it's romney's big chance, it's romney's opportunity, blah, blah, blah. suppose obama goes on the attack tonight. suppose he surprises everybody and doesn't play defense. he doesn't try to handle his opponent and clinch, that he really goes and tries to put him away. and i think that's the significanti i significanting question. how does romney deal with the fact that he has no spontaneity? no ability to deal with the unexpected? how does he d
in their sights. with me at the table is steve kornacki, the host of the cycle and senior writer for salon.com. sigh yu is the founding director of new american leaders project. a national organization for specifically focused on preparing first and second general immigrants. >> robert traynham, an msnbc contributor. chloe angel, a director of -- i'm going to stop talking. what do you think is going to happen on thursday night, steve? >> i think joe biden gets a bad wrap as a politician, as a communicator and as a debater. i'm not sure when exactly it started, but sometime in the last five years. this caricature of biden as everyone's crazy uncle. it's a gaffe a minute. you never know what crazy thing he's going to say next. i think he is a skilled communicator. i think he's a strong debater. the reason he ended up on obama's ticket was because of the democratic primary debates in 2007, 2008. we forget that biden ran for president. how many debates did we step away, it's hillary, it's obama. but joe biden won this debate. i wrote that column four or five times in 2007, 2008. think way back
pastor from chicago, reverend jeremiah wright. steve smith was part of the strategic team in 2008 when they decided that they would not attack barack obama based on his pastor. but this is a different year and it is telling that the right thinks what will unravel the presidency of barack obama and make him a one-term president, the thing that will make people vote for mitt romney is not something from the obama presidency but rather something secret from barack obama's past. something secret people didn't know about him before. if they only knew this about him, his reelection would be impossible. that's the one side of this bomb shell tape. from the other side, this year's bomb shell tapes of paul ryan and mitt romney have not been about some secret past for these men. unless you count paul ryan pledging his allegiance back in 2 2005. the tape that's made a big impact against the republican side this year has been tape of things that paul ryan and mitt romney have been saying within the past year. specifically when they are talking to conservative audiences. so two weeks ago, david cor

. >>> today marks one year since the death of steve jobs. does the company he founded so any signs of slowing down? we'll check more headlines coming up. >> first, a check of the markets. investors around the globe will be paying attention to today's u.s. jobs report. there are some predictions the unemployment rate could go up to 8.2% from 8.1. u.s. stocks were up thursday ahead of the report. the dow picked up 81 points. the nasdaq rose 14. today in japan, the nikkei rose 39. it is now 5:37. we'll be back. we david smallwood: maryland money needs to stay in maryland. it's just that simple, i mean, it's a no brainer. anncr: every year marylanders spend five hundred and fifty... million at casinos in west virginia, delaware... and pennsylvania. one west virginia paper calls it a "cash cow" for them. but its cost maryland over one billion dollars. money that could have created good jobs and... better schools for us. question seven keeps maryland money in maryland. david smallwood: question seven, i think it will be a... good thing for the state of maryland. on gasoline. i am probably going to
areas. >> thank you. >> at evening, steve. >> and steve hammock in the chair of constitution project. and you have two ideas in here which i want to talk about because they both appear to me to be unconstitutional. last night the first is that you say we should allow campaign constitutions only from a candidate whose constituents, nobody else. >> i didn't quite say that, but go ahead. >> actually give me a copy of this chat there. and then you say we would be well served by a broad mandate and that for purposes of campaign contributions, the term persons refers only to actual individual living human beings, no corporate money, no union money, no money from political action committees, no money from political parties. political campaigns should be paid for by people and only people. how do you overcome the constitutional infirmities in both of those ideas? >> we do have to say that he's the chairman of the board of the constitution project commission is the president and i'm on the board. but steve, i had an exchange today with trevor potter, former head of the federal election commit
, where does he run after last night's sweeping win? let's talk. here now is democratic strategist steve mcmahon. and then cnbc contributor geoff jennifer rubin, author of the "washington post" right turn blog. jennifer was it a game changer for the whole presidential race? >> it potentially can be. what has to happen now romney has to build on that day after day. the difficulty they've had, this was true in the primary as well, they have a few good days and then they get off message or they fumble the ball a little bit. if they can string together one good day after another they only have to do it 33 more times they can get it done. >> growth, jennifer. growth, tax reform, lower the base, broaden the base, jobs. he had the kudlow script last night. >> he did. what is so telling is that the president is so thrown off balance he's insisting that romney has changed his plan because he wasn't giving the obama talking points. >> well now hold on. >> the democrats have mischaracterized romney's plans up the ying yang. so when he comes forward and tells what his plans are it's a shock. they th

the light sxwro and join our team. >> joining us now is steve boykin and anne cornbluth and steve deyes. the president out at that rally seemed more enthusiastic. he said that was not the real mitt romney who showed up at the debate last night. so the question to you, was it the real president obama who showed up last night? >> great question, because the president obama at that rally is not what i saw on the debate stage last night. one lingering question in my mind and i even tweeted it in real time. did he know he was on a split screen the entire evening? because style matters, tamron, and the substance -- you know the fact finders are already having a field day on. stylistically he lost the debate. he looked dmismissive and troubled to be there. the president did not respond in kind the way he did in the rally today. >> anne a lot of people are saying all of you folks talking about style and the body language are missing the point. this was supposed to be about substance, and that goes so far because you have the president today saying who is the real mitt romney. the question is fo
bush. neither kerry or mondale translated that into an election night win, although steve kornacki likes to think about a potential mondale president history. as the dust settles, they're back on the trail today. obama is en route to a rally in wisconsin, but earlier today in denver supporters saw the obama we hoped to see last night. >> when i got onto the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. he said that he doesn't even know that there's such laws that encourage outsourcing, never heard of them. he said if it's true, he must need a new accountant. we know for sure it was not the real mitt romney, because he seems to be doing just fine with his current accountant. thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. it's about time. >> that guy's a winner. mitt romney joining paul ryan this evening in my home state of virginia, but which mitt will show up? the mitt who won the debate by putting the president on the defensive, spoke directly to voters and there was a moment or two of humor. will we see the same mitt on the trail for the pas

will accept for the national debt. that was pointed out by steve croft and here is what the president had to say. >> i inherited the biggest deficit in our history. over the last four years, the deficit has gone up but 90% is a consequence of two wars that weren't paid for, as consequence of tax cuts that weren't paid for. a prescription drug plan that wasn't paid for and worst economic crisis since the great depression. that accounts for 10% for the increase in the deficit. >> we asked editor james free man to run the numbers. so let's take these one by one. did president obama inherit the biggest deficit in american history? >> it wasn't the biggest and he didn't inherit it. world war ii had bigger deficits. he didn't really inherit it. he helped create it. 2009 was the first year in office and especially something he doesn't seem to want to remember, stimulus $8000 billion. >> paul: as a share of the economy it was 3.2%. it did balloon to 10.1% in 2009. i would give president bush some credit for that because in fact the recession had started. the recession for his first six months of
